Our guest speaker for the RCFC Zoom meeting on November 25th, Robert M. Lawrence, PhD., has agreed to outline some of the highlights and lowlights of the recently completed state, local and federal elections. Both Republicans and Democrats characterized the election as  historically consequential, with Pres. Trump claiming he would  save the nation from Socialism and rampant crime, and Pres. Elect Biden saying it was a fight for the soul of America.     A fellow Rotarian, Bob will take the screen after his introduction by Bill West.
Rotarians Warren Wilson and Kip Turain had the pleasure of recognizing Cadet Reiss Mika as the Army CSU ROTC Cadet of the Month!  Reiss hails from Eaton, CO and is pursuing his Psychology degree.  During Fall semester, he holds the cadet rank of Staff Sergeant while serving in the position of Class Leader for the Junior class of 38 cadets.  Furthermore, he serves outside CSU and ROTC as a member of the Larimer County Dive and Rescue team.  He attained his Dive Rescue Specialist rating with them and provides valuable training-related feedback within the dive and rescue community.  Upon entering the Army, he would like to be assigned in the Infantry Branch.
Past President Rob Marschke inducted RCFC's newest member, Stephen Smith, sponsored by Dave Stewart.  Smith is a water engineer and businessman having designed and built water projects worldwide.  All Disneyland irrigation projects worldwide were designed and built by Smith's company.  Please welcome Stephen Smith!
Rotary Club of Fort Collins purchased and collected toiletry items for Homeward Alliance to distribute at their next Family Resource Fair.  This week, we filled 200 bags! We had 12 people and were able to spread out on 4 large work stations. Toiletry items are especially needed because these items are not eligible for food stamp redemption nor are they regularly donated to the Food Bank.  Kathy Nicol led the project effort and many Rotarians were involved in donating products/funds and packing the bags, truly a team effort.  Great work team. 
Past RCFC President and current Rotary Foundation Committee chair Melanie Chamberlain started the November 18 Zoom program by summarizing the goals of the Rotary Foundation and listed the various levels of recognition for contributions.  Robin Steele, Chairman of the International Projects and Grants Committee, followed up with a summary of the Committee activities of her committee, including summaries of some of their international grants.  The full program can be viewed by clicking here.
